My Favorite Recipe for Veggie Burgers

This is my new favorite veggie burger recipe. It’s loaded with some of my top favorite foods for gut health like chickpeas, quinoa, oats and sweet potato. Also, there’s anti-inflammatory turmeric and black pepper in these veggie burger patties. I think the best burgers are burgers that nourish your gut microbiome!

Chickpea & Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

The main ingredients for this veggie burger recipe are pretty simple. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Sweet Potato: adding in cooked sweet potato helps keep the burger patties soft and juicy. I don’t like my veggie burger patties to be dry like falafel, so adding in sweet potato helps.
  • Chickpeas: You can use any bean in this recipe, like white beans or red beans, but I prefer Chickpeas as the main source of protein in these veggie burgers.
  • Quinoa: Cooked quinoa adds texture and helps hold the burgers together. Quinoa also adds protein and fiber.
  • Rolled Oats: I love adding rolled oats to my veggie burger recipes. Oats contain beta-glucan, so if the misture is too wet, oats help absorb excess moisture and bind everything together.
  • Other ingredients: Besides the main ingredients above, you’ll just need miso, garlic, onion, chili powder, black pepper, paprika, turmeric, and Turmeric Sauerkraut brine (this is optional, but adds saltiness and a lot of good flavors).

Tips for Making Veggie Burgers with Turmeric, Chickpeas, and Sweet Potato

The only tip I have for this recipe is to gather, prep and measure all the ingredients first. When I make these, I like to start by cooking my quinoa in my Instant Pot. Once that’s done it’s really easy to combine all the ingredients in a food processor.
